the rule book states to randomly place all of the Traveler pieces in a line at the 1st inn, i feel that there should be a way to determine the order the players start at the beginning of the game. anyone have any tips on how the game should start or share from their own experience.
Thanx

the rules state the person furthest away always moves first (in the instance of the first inn, the person furthest away from the road itself, and so on)

the in the inn next to the road always leaves last

If you want to stick with the travel theme, you can order it by who last went on holiday; who's traveled the furthest; who's traveled the most; etc

Decide first player and then go clockwise from there.

What I do:

I take alle the player's travellers in my hands. I close my hands and give a good shake and then I drop the travellers 1 by 1 out of my hand (both hands closed of course, or at least I can't see which traveller I drop). The first to fall will be the first to be placed ór the first to move, etc.

this is what i do. rereading OP's question, i guess he's asking for ways to randomise this, but i initially thought he was asking 'now that i've randomly added everyone to the first inn, who goes first?'

i just shake them all up in my hand, and without looking (keep hands under table, behind back, etc., pull out one at a time to place them at the first inn

I have players who start with the most money act last. So basically you order the players by wealth richest first poorest last. SO the poorest person makes the first action and richest acts last.
